Mixed Media Canvas

Hi creative friends, it’s been a while since I have got messy creating a mixed media project. So I decided it would be fun to make a piece of home decor for my craft room.
This canvas measures approximately 12 x 9 inches.

I started by giving my MDF oval shape a coat of Gesso and once dry I added a layer of Multi Medium. Next I separated the layers of my beautiful vintage napkin and placed the top layer onto the MDF. Once dry I added another couple of layers of Multi Medium to seal it. I heat embossed around the edges with a gold coloured Embossing Powder. Who would have ever thought this started out as a napkin.

The next stage was to create my background onto my canvas. I started by adding Embossing paste through my brick stencil. Once dry I added a layer of Tissue paper with Multi Medium adding creases and puckers and exposing my bricks.

I then added some lace round the outside of my canvas to help frame it. Also adding some dry wall tape, Art stones and more lace around the area my picture would sit and some chipboard shapes for extra detail. Once I was happy I gave my canvas a layer of Gesso to seal everything. Then onto the fun part of using a mix of sprays from 13Arts and Lindys.

Once I had dried with my heat gun I started to highlight all my texture by dry brushing on some Gesso. I also heat embossed some sparkly Embossing Powder for another detail, which unfortunately hasn't been captured in the photos.

My butterfly was made with Resin wings which had been coloured and shaded with Gilding Wax. 

The antennas are wire from my flowers curled into shape and heat embossed with gold, finishing with a rose in the centre.

Onto the fun part of layering on my floral bouquet, accents of pearls onto my chipboard shapes and bling around my lace frame.

Easter Egg Hunt

Hi Everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing some more Easter inspiration with the super selection of Dies they have available.

I started by cutting out my chicks in lemon and white cardstock. I shaded the eggs with Tattered Rose Distress Ink and mounted them onto the yellow die cut chicks adding a drop of Black Liquid Pearls into their eyes. 

My rabbit was shaded with Iced Spruce Distress ink and a fluffy Pom Pom tail added.

My eggs were cut out of Craft Consortium’s Wild Rose Paper Pad and mounted onto background paper and fussy cut around the edges, finishing with lots of pink gems being added onto them for sparkle.

Happy Mothers Day to my Mum

Hi everyone, today I am finally able to share with you all my card for my wonderful Mum on Mother's Day.

On this card I have used Spellbinders new range of Dies from Becca Feeken, please check out her amazing blog HERE.

These flowers are so easy to make and very effective. I used Lemoncraft papers to make my flowers, inking at the edges to add some definition to them and some Stamens into the centres.

I heat embossed the edges of my vintage picture with gold embossing powder and added a layer of gold glitter card from Craft Consortium into my layers and gold foliage stems to also compliment the card.

My butterflies were fussy cut from my Lemoncraft Ephemera Sheet, available from Cherish The Memory and I added some bling into their centres.

Finishing with a stamped fussy cut banner wishing my Mum a Happy Mother's Day.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, your visits are always appreciated.

Happy Mother’s Day - Cherish The Memory

Hi everyone, today I am sharing some more DT inspiration with the beautiful Lemoncraft papers available at Cherish The Memory with a 3D vignette Card.

 This new Die from Spellbinders is such a fab design as it folds flat for posting.

 After cutting all my layers and assembling my card, I die cut my topper and fussy cut my Butterflies and flowers from the Ephemera sheets. 

I inked them at the edges and positioned them on my card along with a ribbon and my sentiment which was stamped onto paper from the coordinating paper pad.

Please do check out all the amazing Lemoncraft products available at Cherish The Memory HERE.

Here is also the link to Becca's beautiful Blog where you will see all her wonderful dies.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Crafting,
